    Bahama Cruising Made Simple!

    This course is absolutely worth it! I haven't been to the Bahamas yet and had started researching and taking notes and was getting overwhelmed. I bought this course and it has totally lowered my stress levels and makes all the items that need to get done more understandable. It completely streamlines the research process. Highly recommend!!


    Super helpful course on cruising the Bahamas and cruising in general. Thank you for all of information and built-in links!
